Qumana Software has just released AdGenta, an advertising network focused on inserting ads into blog posts. They claim that their ad network is based on gathering the best of other ad networks, and invidual partners, into one central location. This would give you the best inventory, the best CTR, and the greatest opportunity to earn money.

Some features:
  • The ads are images, so they flow from blog to RSS to e-mail seamlessly
  • The ads are keyword-driven, so they don't conflict with contextual ad programs. I can use them along with Adsense
  • You choose the keywords, so you can decide which ads are best for your readers - not some computer algorithm
  • You can track the clicks by ad - that's right, you can watch to see which keywords are working out for you simply by tagging your ads with a title you can then see in your stats
  • You can preview your ad before you insert it - and we tell you if your keyword does not match any ads
and many more.

Sign up for an account at AdGenta. Approval is automatic, so you can be putting ads into your posts in minutes.

Ads by AdGenta.com

I have signed up and would be experimenting with AdGenta.

Update (7.40 am):
  • Currently AdGenta can be used along with Qumana only
  • I downloaded Qumana, generated the AdGenta code and manually inserted it in this blog. It does not work, so far
(6.35 pm):
  • Tris Hussey of Adgenta wrote back saying that the above ad was visible to him. I have checked the same on IE 6.0.2 and Firefox 1.0.7, but I do not see the ad. I asked my friend in a different part of the city (using IE 6) and he too said there was no ad. What's wrong?
14th Oct. (6.35 am):
  • Qumana sent me an email that says that there could be some IP filtering going on and that they are working to get around that.
(9.35 am):
  • Tris just replied - "We suspect there is IP filtering occurring, but it is not likely that it is coming from us. The ad provider could be blocking ads from being delivered to certain IP address ranges. We are investigating this now."
25th Oct. (4.35 am):
  • Tris wrote back saying - "Well Satish, as I suspected it isn't AdGenta blocking the ads, but our ad partner. We are working on a process where if a user requests an ad and it can't be served by our partner we have some ads that we will serve ourselves. We are also expanding our partner network so that this will be less of an issue in the future." I guess, I will have to wait till they do this.

Currently, You can only post AdGenta ads in your post, if you use the Qumana software. Also, I am trying to figure out why the advt does not appear, even when I have put the code.

We think there might be some IP filtering going on. Working to get around that. We can see ad just fine.

I can see the add too (i think), though at the moment, my adblock plugin for firefox cleans it out.

Wondering if IP's from India are being filtered out, for some reason. Friends from outside India are able to see the same. Mayuresh, can you send me a screen shot of the ad?

i think if they build a new web tool to build new ads via http://ads.adgenta.com/ads/ads.dll/BannerDesigner? to build contextual TEXT Ads, adgenta/qumana can be very powerfull.

This is a little demostration of how i think that qumana text ads can be:
